Matt Barber appeared on Joe Miller's radio program yesterday to discuss the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling and Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis' refusal to allow her office to issue marriage licenses in its wake. Davis eventually wound up in jail as a result of her actions, which allowed her subordinates to issue licenses in her absence, at which point she was released on the condition that she no longer interfere with the issuing of such licenses in the future. Davis has been back on the job for well over a month now and her office has continued to issue marriage... MORE >

On Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program today, Matt Barber declared that the vitriol aimed at Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis for prohibiting her office from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples is reminiscent of the days of Sodom and Gomorrah and the Inquisition, as LGBT activists insist that everyone "come on board with our pagan sexuality or we will literally kill you." "This whole saga," he said, "is reminiscent of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19 ... The homosexual men of Sodom and Gomorrah, they surrounded the house... MORE >

The decision by a federal judge to put Kim Davis in the custody of U.S. Marshals for repeatedly violating the law and refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples has solidified the Kentucky clerk’s status as a Religious Right martyr. Following the court’s ruling, conservative leaders and commentators immediately defended Davis. Mike Huckabee, who has called Davis to offer his support, repeated his talking point about the “criminalization of Christianity” and announced plans to travel to Kentucky to support her legal battle. I'm... MORE >

While introducing a news report today about Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, who is defying the Supreme Court by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, “700 Club” host Pat Robertson offered an “I told you so” message to viewers. Boasting that he and others warned people that the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling would undermine freedom, Robertson lamented that “there will be persecution time and time again against those people who disagree with the prevailing view that sodomy should be the law of the land and should be practiced...

A few weeks ago, amid the ongoing smear campaign falsely alleging that Planned Parenthood profits off the illegal sale of body parts from aborted fetuses, it was revealed that GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson had done medical research using tissue from aborted fetuses in the past. Carson defended the practice but his explanation didn't make much sense and it certainly has not convinced Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver or Matt Barber, who likened Carson to a Nazi doctor on their "Faith and Freedom" radio program today. While never mentioning Carson by name, Staver and Barber... MORE >

Religious Right legal group Liberty Counsel, which opposes LGBT equality in the U.S. and around the world, has been urging resistance in the form of mass civil disobedience to the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling. On Wednesday, a federal court ruled against Liberty Counsel and its client, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who has refused on religious grounds to issue a marriage license to same-sex couples. U.S. District Judge David Bunning issued a preliminary injunction ordering her to do her job and comply with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Bunning, a Bush appointee,... MORE >

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber called for the creation of "sanctuary states" where Planned Parenthood facilities are defunded and shut down and abortion is simply outlawed by Republican governors and state legislatures. Praising the right-wing smear campaign against Planned Parenthood, Staver reiterated his call for the creation of abortion-free zones as he urged Congress to defund the organization and for states to follow suit, because Planned Parenthood should not be receiving "any more for genocide...
